Tess was adorable and sleepy this morning, so she only took part of her bottle. I was disappointed but not stressed. When she’s too tired to eat and falls asleep in my arms, I just can’t put her back in her crib! I end up sitting there snuggling her and looking down at that almost-chubby face. She’s so perfect, so sweet, and the answer to so many prayers. Poor Dave! I was an hour later than normal coming back to the house.
We enjoyed a leisurely brunch at one of our favorite spots, then Dave headed over for afternoon cares and I headed back to the Ron McDonald house to do laundry, work, and finish the 2011 photo book. Those of you in the know are probably already laughing and rolling your eyes, but every year we put together a bound, published book of everything that happened that year. I guess we always feel like we have so much to celebrate that we have to document it. I was late getting started on last year’s, and it’s mammoth 240 pages!
Looking back at 2011, Dave and I have no regrets. We got our adoption stuff in order, watched the house go under the beginning of a huge overhaul (thanks mom!), and traveled the world to spend time with friends, family and each other. I only hope every year can be as full of awe, joy, exuberance and jet lag. 2012 is already in the bag! Tess may be in most of our photos for the year – I’m just guessing. 🙂
